Thank God for little things
that often come our way.
The things we take for granted,
but don’t mention when we pray.
The unexpected courtesy,
the thoughtful , kindly deed,
a hand reached out to touch us,
in the time of sudden need-
Oh, make us more aware, dear God
of little daily graces
that come to us with “sweet surprise”
from never dreamed of places.
